THERMOSTAT COSTS

Recommended Posts

I just had a quote from VW in Leeds to replace the thermostat at £860.

contribution from VW would bring that down to £420.

What are people paying to get this done - and any recommendations in the Leeds area to go?

Seeing as how many of them fail I would say that is £420 too much!

Give Shak a call - https://www.lowndesstreetgarage.co.uk/ he may be able to do it cheaper than that

What exactly have they quoted for, include the water pump?

I would also try another dealer.

VW Leeds (Sytner) have opted out of the VW pricing structure so they can pretty much charge what they want. I would try another local dealer (Bradford, Wakefield)

As far as I could see, the thermostat was 216, then labour and vat took it to 860 a I didn’t see a water pump listed. 

 

Thanks for the IVC contact , I will give them and Bradford a call and see what they say.

cheers.

I’ll give Lowndes St a call as well - Bolton is a bit of a drive, but I have friends over that way so could kill two birds with one stone. I don’t mind travelling if the job is done well.

If ypu replace the thermo you must replace the pump plate otherwise it will leak trust me. The old pump is plastic the new is metal. 
Yeah there have been quite a few revisions to the design I think 4 or maybe 5? Hopefully they finally got it right!

That was after they scratched my wing and fitted a matrix i didnt need. I use a specialist now! Vw master tech my arse! Screw the main dealer history. 
Ouch not good, I'm lucky I have a good dealer near me who have been great so far
